3:04 am
shelling that you can hear is coming over our heads from russian positions and hitting ukrainian positions around about 2 or 3 kilometers from here. this is what heavy artillery sounds like when it's fired over your head. that was just the shell blush through the the crunch, just a hit explode. the soldiers have used british made anti tank missiles called in law's part of a multi $1000000000.00 military, a package from ukraine's western partners. and is in addition. but it's not unless we're grateful to western countries for helping us with weapons. because russia has much more than us. we can't hold them back without their health. from afford observation point soldiers tell us, russian forces are behind the wall. only a few 100 meters away. and they are facing high tech weapons from above. those for

3:06 am
will be done stages to give government time to look for talent as supplies. but several countries are pushing for exemptions from any embargo. dominic came reports from ballin. this is the gasp romney f installation in hunting months. he asked from installations like these in siberia and across russia. crude oil, diesel and petrol are pumped to customers. taken together every day, nearly 8000000 barrels of crude and refined products are exported. 2 thirds of them end up in europe. but now russia's war against ukraine has changed everything to day. we are addressing our dependency on russian oil. and let's be clear. it will not be easy because some member states are strongly dependent on russian oil, but we simply have to do it. so today we will propose to ban all russian oil from you wrote,
3:07 am
this will be this will be a complete import. bannon, all russian oil seaborne and pipeline crude and refined. but in order for this to happen, it will need the support of all e u member states, and some a strongly resistant to all out embargoes by sally back. give you. russell's anxious package would destroy the security of hungry energy supply. while you're like this package in this form cannot responsibly be supported of homeowners, ninja need. the sanctions proposed in strasburg will also target several large russian banks and other financial institutions. the notable absentee from the list is russian natural gas. in a sense, it's the elephant to the european living room, too big to be ignored, but also too big, unilaterally to be done away with, without seriously damaging economies across this continent. bottom line is you will probably not be able to replace rocky gas any time soon. we're talking about
3:08 am
a $150000000.00 billing cubic meters of gas that russia says west that's coming down at the moment. but we're still gonna face a shortage of, of quite a few bcm out there. the russian government condemned the proposed embargo and said sanctions, or a double edged weapon, which will also hurt europeans economically. and that's the problem facing e u leaders. they want to act fast against russia, but they're stuck with the reality of decisions that governments across europe made over decades when they thought that it was in their best interests to make deals with president putin. dominic cane al jazeera berlin, alex chandel as the president of energy intelligence. he says, countries like hungry will find it particularly hard to win themselves off russian energy. i think it's important to point out that this span on russian oil has been in the works for a while. so i think european union started get its head around it. i think the
3:09 am
important thing to note here is the ban on russian crude oil. which of these are the barrels are taken out of the grounds and sent over to refineries. that's a lot easier to deal with than ban on russian crew products, which is much more difficult. and just illustrate that if you look at the figures for april, the amount of rushing crude oil important into the european union is downs and 40 percent from 2021. and if you look at russian crude products, so we're talking about diesel and gasoline, etc. that's actually up from 2021. so that kind of illustrates the issue here. and i think shows why european is saying it's going to be phase out the product and the phase up by the end of this year. and the crude is gonna be much quicker. and so with the vacuum hungry you've already starting to see questions saying they won the exemption to this if it actually goes through. but let's not forget germany is also, you know, the european union's biggest economy is account for about a started,
3:10 am
it's imports from, from russia. so it has a pretty monumental job of replacing russian oil in its economy as well. so i think we're going to see very closely whether this big announcement today actually creates, you know, entity throughout the group and it, it very well may not. and let's see if the solutions are poles in the u. s. sho, rising inflation is now the number one concern for most americans. and in response to federal reserve raised a key interest rate by half a percentage point today and hopes move will reduce demand and low inflation. so the biggest hike in 20 years. gabriel elizondo is more more shed in dc for regard to a good, a business is good at his beloved food truck. he calls tamales, packers pueblo. but when he needs to restock the trucks, refrigerator, with ingredients he had to a local market, realizes everything has gone up in price by a lot,

3:12 am
the u. s. economy began to shut down the federal reserve slashed interest rates to near 0 to keep the economy from total collapse. it worked. but since then, supply chains have become clogged while consumer demand has increased along with energy costs, with russia's war and ukraine. goods and services have become more expensive. inflation kept creeping up last year and has been over 6 percent for 6 straight months. it's now at a 40 year high, so interest rates are going up to put the brakes on an overheating economy. left unchecked in ation can lead to an unsustainable cycle of prey. sikes that directly affect consumers and business owners, just like ricardo the food truck owner. have a business run and a felony to support hey,

hebrew, venezuela nicaragua have been excluded from the upcoming summit of the americas in los angeles. the u. s. says those countries don't meet the necessary democratic standards. the decision has put washington at odds with countries in the region. in elgin, they're exclusive on latin american, eta, salisia newman, spoke with keepers deputy foreign minister to get havana as reaction. as the name implies, the summit of the americas, as the only venue were leaders of north central and south america, gathered to confront pressing problems. this year the theme is migration, but the host president joe biden has unilaterally decided to exclude 3 countries, including cuba. by o, thank you. thank you for. i'm mad cubic deputy foreign minister, godless fernandez. the ga seal of van is point, man for us affairs, to talk about the implications of washington's controversial decision. or we have
3:21 am
said that a saw me that excludes some countries of the region. it's an exclusive summit, but if you're going to have the summit, you're going to spend money on it. if you're going to go to the trouble of convening, heads of state and government, it would be to discuss the difficult problems that we have in our region, which are difficult. some of them are controversial and for the summer to be successful. the useful thing to do, and the fair approach to take would be to have everybody in have everybody put forward their point of view, even if you don't like, as we all know, tuba is undergoing a huge exodus of its citizens right now, the largest since the 1980 is actually why do you think that is one of the basic reasons that is pushing migration is people saw that the policy of the biding government is exactly the policy of the trump government, which is maximum pressure toward cube the policy of the us against cube in economic turns to date is nothing short of criminal. it's
3:22 am
a criminal policy to punish the livelihood of people. while i've heard i asked for an undesirable seal if and as a gesture to the biden administration, the head of the summit of, than up my grant, an amnesty to protest his sentence, the harsh prison sentences, critiquing part in last year's anti government protest. why would cuba have to make concessions for us to stop applying a policy that is criminal? and that is clearly unfair. what would you say to president biden if you had him on the phone right now, about the fact that he doesn't want to invite cuba to the summit of the americas when that was one of the things that the vast majority of the countries of the region fought for, for so many years. i doubt that he would speak with me. but i would say that if you're going to call it a summit, you could call the summit of a part of the america. you cannot cali some of the america. if you guys could, some, you should not fear having frank dialog,
3:23 am
even when there are differences. and there are differences in the region. and there are problems, immense problems or regions. the countries need to talk about countries the region are claiming. that'd be an inclusive summit. and the cube being put, the us should pay attention to it and start shift could be looming in the politics of the british territory of northern ireland after elections on thursday. should fain, once the political wing of the all right, is poised to become the biggest policy in the regions assembly was john hall reports. it would be significant milestone should find. quest for united island catholic protestant unionists or nationalists not much matters more in northern ireland than identity and the symbols of sectarian struggle to preserve it. thursday's election will test both with the likelihood of a nationalist shouldn't fame victory sweeping away a 100 years of pro british dominance and
3:24 am
a possible union is boy cult of the power sharing government. as a result, this will be very significant because of course should vain. and as its primary intention is seen, northern ireland no longer exists. it wants to see irish unification. so to have should face the largest party assembly in northern ireland. am bearing in mind that overnight was created to maintain a unionist majority would be remarkably significant. dana murray is a young nationalist blow to bone in 1998 when the good friday agreement brought an end to the troubles. he grew up on the streets that then those now bear the marks of violence and division. is hector hotmail, hotmail, recently. last year on the road, just mcafee rules. so there is that element of the stiller, i think you have to go democracy a child in this new assembly. if it is to be a nicest 1st minister, you know, lot that nice assure will desire to go back there has going to take him and trust
